Let your employees know how much their work is appreciated and show them that they are a valuable part of your office. Take a look at these 8 ideas to find the perfect gift for your office community.
- Creative Gift Baskets
This is an easy gift for employees to share with their families, and can fit to a variety of budgets. Surprise employees with a spread of cookies or healthier options such as nuts or snack mixes. They will be sure to appreciate a solution to their 3pm snack cravings whether it’s at their desk or at the kitchen table!
- Quality Laptop or Travel Bags
While novelty gifts are always fun, a practical gift is something that employees will be grateful for. Give employees something they can use in their daily lives, either in the office or when they take advantage of those vacation days.
- Vacuum Insulated Thermos
Whether your employees are on the go or at their desk, everyone likes their coffee to stay hot. With a vacuum insulated thermos, employees will be able to enjoy their piping hot latte or their cold, refreshing water for longer.
- Health Gear
Encourage your staff to get active and stay healthy with customized yoga mats, gym towels, and water bottles! Exercise can help employees reduce stress and anxiety, and, according to this 2015 study, happy employees are up to 12% more productive in the workplace.
Whether they’re listening to music at home, streaming their favorite podcast, or livening up their family barbeque, employees are sure to appreciate a quality set of speakers to enhance their morning routines and unwind at the end of the day. The gift of quality speakers is sure to please, no matter what your employees listens to.
- Fun Gadgets and Tools
Brighten up employees’ holidays with some fun, nontraditional gadgets! These are the gifts that people won’t buy for themselves, but would love to have! Try everything from BBQ sets, beautiful wine accessories, or sunglasses that double as wine openers!
- Custom Sweatshirts
Especially in the cold winter months, everyone appreciates a warm piece of clothing to keep the chill away. Help your employees stay warm in the winter with custom sweatshirts or hats. You can even give employees the option of requesting sweatshirts for their families as well!
- Desk-friendly plants
It’s common knowledge that greenery can brighten any indoor room, but did you know that plants can benefit employees’ health, reduce stress levels, and boost productivity, too? Give your employees something that to liven up both their desk and their mood!
While you don’t need to break your budget, it is important to make sure that your employees are recognized for their achievements. Not only will your employees feel appreciated, but a quality gift will also help to build your office community and make your team that much stronger.
